Cross Country is a team sport offered in the fall for both boys and girls. It is a sport that encourages both individual and team participation and can be a lifelong activity. This is a cooperative program between Cleveland and Mankato Loyola. We have had this co-op in place since 2012. The Cross Country teams have had tremendous success over the years with six conference titles, four State Meet appearances, and numerous All-State and Academic All-State individual winners since the co-op has been in place. Our athletes have fun, train hard, and run well. By bringing a positive attitude to practice daily, our athletes are set-up to achieve their goals in this great sport.

The Minnesota River Bulldogs are a multi school co-op consisting of Cleveland, Saint Peter, TCU, Le Sueur-Henderson & Belle Plaine. We play out of the Le Sueur Community Center, and compete in the Big South Conference in Section 1A. Our goal is to learn how to work as a team to compete and achieve a common goal. Players are expected to be upstanding citizens both in and out of school. We hold our players to high expectations and expect them to follow through. As a member of the Bulldog hockey program we strive to teach these young men that there is more to life than being a good athlete.
